Lionsgate’s new Ghost House Underground label has acquired Gregg Bishop’s popular SXSW 2008 midnight movie, Dance of the Dead, according to Gregg Kilday at The Hollywood Reporter. Bishop’s geek horror flick was easily one of the most beloved films in the SXSW midnight slate, and wowed audiences with its dose of John Hughes awkwardness and Sam Raimi bloodlust. Ghost House Undergound is expected to release the film in October. On a side note, Kilday’s article mentions another pick-up by the company, Dave Payne’s No Man’s Land: The Rise of Reeker. It’s worth noting that No Man’s Land is a sequel of sorts to Payne’s SXSW 2005 midnight movie, Reeker. This new installment has to yet to screen in public, but is currently at the Cannes Market.
